I've been trying to find Frozen Puff Pastry in supermarkets without success...

I think it's called 'hojaldre' - but where would I look in the supermarket please?

Or do they not have it here?

I'd like to use some with a white sauce for leftover chicken (can't turn it all into curry!)

Dear Friend,

If you find yourself in Spain, you'll have no problem in buying some frozen puff pastry. El Corte Inglés, Carrefour, Alcampo, or any supermarket has it. I'll buy it very often.

I've bought it before in Madrid a few times , usually at El Corte Inglés ( Goya Branch ) . If I remember rightly it was near the frozen dessert area in the freezers ( up where all the cheese , sausage , jamón deli counters are ) . Left hand side as you walk towards the panadería .

masa de hojaldre = puff pastry
yes you can buy in any supermarket not necessarily the big ones the smaller ones lke Hipercor (grocery brand of El Corte Ingles) has it too or if you want something gourmet go to
my favorites when in Madrid.
